Internet Society (ISOC) Future Internet Scenarios

Internet Society (ISOC) Future Internet Scenarios
What Will The Internet Look Like In 10 Years? The Internet Society engaged in a scenario planning exercise to reveal plausible courses of events that could impact the health of the Internet in the future. While obviously not intended to be a definitive overview of the landscape or all potential issues, we believe the results are interesting and, we hope, thought-provoking. We are sharing them in the hope that they will inspire thought about possibilities for the future development of the Internet, and involvement in helping to make that happen in the best possible way.

6 Predictions for the Future of the Internet Last September the Internet turned 40. I think it’s safe to say that no technology has evolved so much in so little time. Even in the past fifteen years or so, it has completely reinvented itself; arguably several times. So what’s next? Technology is always evolving – and none quite as fast as the Internet. A quick preface OK Internet, let’s call a truce for a minute or two. As anyone who has spent time on a site’s comment section knows, the Internet can be a cruel place. 1. Dick Tracey was ahead of the curve Building the web with standards and accessibility in mind brings the Internet to as wide an audience as possible. I’m calling it: people on the train with headphones attached to their mobile device while Text-to-Speech reads them the latest articles from their favorite sites. From an input standpoint, speech recognition has come a long way in the last decade. It’s not perfect: about a quarter of the time, she’ll reply that she didn’t understand my request. Hal 9000 2.

Does The Future Of The Internet Have Room For Web Designers? - Smashing Magazine Advertisement Update (27.09.2010): this article caused quite a heated debate in the design community. Please read the rebuttal of this article, called I Want To Be A Web Designer When I Grow Up here, at Smashing Magazine. — Vitaly Friedman, editor-in-chief of Smashing Magazine It seems that new posts about what the Internet has in store for us down the road pop up every week or two. After all, it was only a little more than 15 years ago that Clifford Stoll wrote the now-infamous “The Internet? As web designers and developers, what the future holds for the Internet is imperative for our livelihoods. The Future is Content and Data Look at your mobile phone. The answer is probably “not much”. We use an app to check email. Mozilla Prism is an application that lets users split web applications out of their browser and run them directly on their desktop. It’s likely a similar scenario on our desktop or laptop computer. This is because for most users, design is irrelevant. There are Advantages…

Internet Traffic is now 51% Non-Human So you thought the Internet was made by and for people? Think again. A study by Incapsula, a provider of cloud-based security for web sites (mind you where this data comes from), concludes that 51% of all Internet traffic is generated by non-human sources such as hacking software, scrapers and automated spam mechanisms. While 20% of the 51% non-human traffic is’ good’, the 31% majority of this non-human traffic is potentially malicious. The study is based on data collected from 1,000 websites that utilize Incapsula’s services, and it determined that just 49% of Web traffic is human browsing. 20% is benign non-human search engine traffic, but 31% of all Internet traffic is tied to malicious activities. 19% is from ” ‘spies’ collecting competitive intelligence,” 5% is from automated hacking tools seeking out vulnerabilities, 5% is from scrapers and 2% is from content spammers. Presumably these numbers will only rise. Thanks Bruce.

Comment l’internet transforme-t-il la façon dont on pense ? (4/5 Par Hubert Guillaud le 12/02/10 | 1 commentaire | 4,512 lectures | Impression “Comment l’internet transforme-t-il la façon dont vous pensez ?”, telle était la grande question annuelle posée par la revue The Edge à quelque 170 experts, scientifiques, artistes et penseurs. Difficile d’en faire une synthèse, tant les contributions sont multiples et variées et souvent passionnantes. Internet n’a rien changé ! Tous les experts interrogés par The Edge ne sont pas des techno-enthousiastes. Pour Nicholas A. L’intelligence de notre cerveau a évolué en réponse aux exigences de la complexité sociale, affirme l’auteur en reprenant “l’hypothèse du cerveau social”. L’internet peut tout changer Pourtant, ce n’est peut-être pas ce constat qui est important, estime-t-il.

What SolarCity Wants: Raising Money From Investors It Couldn't Reach Before To broaden its fundraising base and support its growth, SolarCity said Wednesday it will tap new types of investors by launching an online investing tool developed a company it bought last month. The California solar company paid an undisclosed amount for Common Assets, which was founded only 18 months ago and hand’t started running its investment portal before being acquired. SolarCity plans to roll out by the end of June a website where individual, corporate and institutional investors could browse opportunities to invest in SolarCity’s projects. Common Assets got its start with funding from the private equity firm, U.S. Renewables Group, and Tim Newell and John Witchel, Common Assets’ CEO and chief architect, respectively. The investments that pour in through the new website will mostly likely be translated into debt securities, said Newell, who is now SolarCity’s vice president of financial products. Expanding its investor base is crucial SolarCity’s longevity.

Surfningen är död och länkarnas revansch « Mazocialmedia's Blog För att börja från början. De som hoppade på Internet tåget, när det började bli mera allmänt 1996-1997, kommer säkert ihåg när man skulle söka något på Internet, så använde man Altavista eller fick länk tips via någon fack tidning. Själv kommer jag ihåg vad jag sökte på första gången. Jag sökte på Åland och fick faktiskt någon träff, sedan sökte jag på Geta och fick upp japanska skor som tydligen är eller var en känd sort på den tiden. Som tredje ord sökte jag på IF Start och en träff på en norsk idrottsförening. När man blev lite varmare i kläderna så började man att surfa dvs man hittade en länk och så klickade man på den och kollade om det var något att ha och så kollade man om det fanns någon länk på den sidan och så surfade man vidare, man kunde utan problem sätta när timmar på att hitta något vettigt. När vi börjar komma till slutet av 1990-talet, så började det dyka upp länkportaler där relevanta länkar samalades, så att man inte hela tiden behövde söka dem. @nyan_politik
